Montessori Preschool

Montessori is a child-centered educational approach based on Dr. Maria Montessori's scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood. The Montessori Method is backed by over 100 years of success in cultures throughout the world. This approach values the development of the whole child - physical, social, emotional, cognitive skills.

In Montessori Children's House classrooms, preschool students learn in class with kindergarten students. Preschool students in our Montessori schools have the option of continuing in the same classroom as kindergarteners. Both schools hope to retain all  students since children who learn the Montessori method from a young age form the core of the school as they age.

  • Children must be 4 years of age on or before August 31st for Fall enrollment.
